Vergemoli ha le mura di menta, piange chi esce, ride chi entra (Vergemoli has the walls of mint, laughs who enters, cries who quits)
The settlements in the area date back to the medieval period, testimony of the richness of the urban fabric. The proximity of the Natural Park of the Apuan Alps makes it a naturalistic destination where the suggestive Cave of the Wind is one of the most enchanting places in the park. Also noteworthy are the Parco del Levigliese and Eremo di Calomini.
